“Tribeca is a forward thinking storytelling festival and we have been supporting work that goes beyond the big screen for many years. As the technology and tools proliferate in the creative community and new distribution models emerge we feel it is the right time to expand and support artists on these growing platforms in a broader way,” said Festival Director Genna Terranova.

Watch videos from Tribeca 2016 with a Q & A featuring the producers behind Chef’s Table, and a trailer for The Downtown Project.
